Why is it taking so long to sell? Most of the homes in that development are Short Sales. Sadly many of the homes will never sell as one of the parties involved either the Bank, Buyers or the Seller can be unreasonable or unrealistic. This can prevent the short sale offer acceptance or escrow closing.
An experienced Realtor can usually and quickly direct you to those properties that don't have such issues. Patterson is a very active home market with many offers on all reasonable homes. If your not being successful in buying a home, perhaps, you need someone else to assist you. I hope this helps you? If I or my team can assist you in any way please feel free to contact me personally. Mike Huffman 209-544-0155
